Girl on First Day of School

Photo of a student on the first day of schoolLakota's "A New Year, A New You" back-to-school Facebook photo contest is back by popular demand!

The new school year begins Tuesday, August 16. We know how much preparation goes into that first day of school - the outfit, the new backpack, the classroom, the lesson plan…the first day photo. So, why not show it off?

Snapping that first day photo on your front stoop, at your bus stop, with your carpool group or in your classroom is tradition for our students, parents and staff. Consider submitting your photo and we'll share it with the rest of the Lakota community via our Facebook page.

It's a fun and easy way to celebrate our students’, staff’s and even parents’ smiles on the first day of school. It’s also a chance to start off the new school year with a new look. The owners of the three photos with the most votes, or "likes," after a full week of school (Aug. 24 at noon) will receive a collection of Lakota East or West spirit items. A new year, a new you!

How to Participate:

  1. Whether you’re a student, a parent or a staff member, determine what part of your first day you want to capture and share with others.
  2. Submit your photo via a private message on Lakota’s Facebook page or by email to
  3. Wait for it to be posted to Lakota’s Facebook photo gallery, then share it with your friends to rack up the “likes,” or votes. 
Here’s to a great new school year - and lots of your photos to document the first day back!
